To celebrate their 5th anniversary in Las Vegas, Boa Steakhouse and Sushi Roku were offering all menu items at half off for a few days. What a great time to try the food there! Since we’d been to Sushi Roku, we decided to give Boa a try. The restaurant is located in the newer section of Caesar’s Palace’s Forum Shops, on the third floor. It’s quite large inside, with an exterior patio looking out on the strip. Here’s what we ordered:
Baklava with goat cheese, pistachios, and frisee: Our waiter told us this was his favorite, and indeed, it was delicious! The Baklava was incredibly light and flaky, with just enough creamy goat cheese in the middle, and a nice topping of crunchy pistachios and honey on top. Quite a nice combination of textures and flavors.
French onion soup: This was a nice version of french onion soup, with a nice, beefy, umami broth, but it lacked a bit in seasoning. I think a sprinkle of salt would’ve made this soup go from good to great.
Filet Mignon: For my entree, I chose my favorite cut of meat, medium rare. The meat was tender, tasty, and cooked perfectly. I’d forgotten to order a sauce to accompany it, but it really didn’t need it! I did smatter a bit of the accompanying roasted garlic on it, which added a nice flavor.
Creamed spinach: We only chose one side to split, and we were glad we did! The creamed spinach was quite tasty. Smooth, flavorful, with the spinach not overly done, so you actually could tell you were still eating spinach, and not green soup. Quite a nice version! Oh, and we could only finish about half of it…
Overall, a very good meal, although with so many other steakhouses in town (like Bob’s Ranch House, right by our house!), I’m not sure I’m going to rush back here to pay full price. If you’re in the area, though, the food is great!
